    Judging not the amount of work, but the quality of the body of work they did, do you think the follwing writers & artists did better work for Marvel or for DC? And why?

    Jack Kirby
    Hands down. His Marvel work in the 60s remains unsurpassed

    Steve Englehart
    Although I loved his Batmans with Marshall Rogers, his best work was on Marvels Avengers

    Keith Giffin
    I prefer his DC work over Marvel. His Legion was classic

    Geoff Johns
    DC. His Avengers pales to his JSA and Flash runs

    Jim Lee
    Marvel. Best X-Men artist since Byrne left the series.

    Roy Thomas
    DC, his Golden Age stuff is superior to even his run on Avengers

    George Perez
    A tough one. I guess DC since he made the Teen Titans cool.

    The Kubert Brothers
    Marvel. They made me forget who Jim Lee was in the 90s

    Jim Starlin
    Marvel. Adam Warlock, Thanos & Captain Mar-Vell rule over OMAC

    John Byrne
    Marvel. Although he made Superman cool again for the first time. His FF run has yet to be surpassed

    Neal Adams
    DC, even though his X-Men issues are some of my all-time favorites, I'd still read Green Lantern/Green Arrow first

    Walt Simonson
    Marvel. Thor was kick asgardian hands down

    Louise Simonson
    Marvel. Enjoyed her Superman stuff, but X-Factor & Power Pack were better

    Roger Stern
    DC. Hey he made the Will Payton Starman a hero of my hometown. That trumps his Spidey & Avengers work right there

    Marv Wolfman
    Marvel. NOVA. Nuff said

    Frank Miller
    Another tough one. Dark Knight or Elektra...gotta go with Marvel

    *and remember there are no right or wrong answers...just right opinions*

Jack Kirby- Marvel. "Nuff Said"
I agree with most of your answers except for two, Jim Lee and Frank Miller. I guess I'm biased but I didn't enjoy much from the 90's so that probably skews my view in regards to Lee's 90's X-Men run. As for Miller I have to go with Dark Knight since it is a classic in my book.
As for Byrne, let's not forget his classic X-Men, Avengers West Coast, and Alpha Flight runs as well.
